Vitebsk social and political activists, human rights defenders and journalists have responded to the call of the HRC “Viasna” – “Send a letter of support to Ales Bialiatsky”. Within several days, they wrote about thirty letters on postcards. Postcards were sent to the Minsk detention center number 1, in Valadarsky street.

The content of these cards is not usual: each of them has a line from the poem of Maksim Bahdanovich “Pahonya”written on it. Thus, if Ales Belyatsky receives all the letters sent to him by activists from Vitebsk, he will read the full text of the famous patriotic work.

“In fact, it was a flash mob, – said one of the members of support action. – In addition to traditional forms of moral support of Ales Bialiatsky we used creativity. Postcards with landscapes of Vitebsk region, combined with inspiring lines must encourage human rights defender and revive his drab prison life”.
